About the Authors
  • This book by Michael Banner explores and attempts to understand the significance of Christian belief for a range of contemporary and controversial ethical issues including euthanasia, the environment, biotechnology, abortion, the family, sexual ethics, and the distribution of scarce resources for health care. Its importance lies in its attempt to show the crucial difference that Christian belief makes to an understanding of these issues, while at the same time demonstrating some of the weaknesses and confusions of certain popular approaches to them.

    • Addresses controversial ethical issues, such as abortion, euthanasia, the family, the environment and biotechnology, which are of particular concern in contemporary society
    • Explores the significance of Christian belief for modern life
    • Offers a critique of the range of alternative approaches to ethical issues

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this book would serve well as supplementary reading in a practical Christian ethics course..." Journal of Religion

    "Michael Banner is an event waiting to happen. He is clearly one of the brightest and most interesting young people doing ethics on the scene today. He is a first-rate theologian who promises to be a new and long-standing voice not only in England but in America. This is a good book and one I believe will be widely read." Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University
